Rather lawsuit says he was 'scapegoat'

Lev. 16 Torah reading Yom Kippur day describes original Yom Kippur where High Priest took goat and made "escape goat" into wilderness with one and sacrificed other, carrying the sins of Israel cathartically away.

NEW YORK - A $70 million lawsuit filed by Dan Rather alleges CBS and its former parent company intentionally botched the aftermath of a discredited story about President Bush's military service to curry favor with the administration.

CBS spokesman Dana McClintock called Rather's complaints "old news" and said the lawsuit filed Wednesday in state Supreme Court in Manhattan was "without merit." Former CBS parent company Viacom Inc. had no comment.

The lawsuit claims Rather was made a "scapegoat" to placate the Bush administration after questions arose about the story, which concerned President Bush's military service during the Vietnam War.

Today we have no scapegoat-its just us and God. On Yom Kippur we don't blame anyone else, we look inward, accept responsibility and repent.
